Membership Matters

The mission of the Live Oak Art Center is to advance community appreciation, understanding, and participation in the visual arts. We strive to encourage artists, build audiences, stimulate dialogue, and promote arts inquiry through our exhibitions, publications, fellowship programs, education programs, and community collaborations.

LOAC is supported by annual memberships, private foundation and government grants, and corporate and individual donations. Thanks to the generosity of these community-minded individuals, businesses, and foundations, LOAC is able to continue offering innovative art exhibitions and programs to our community.

Annual memberships with the Live Oak Art Center are available for those who wish to further their support of the arts and receive access to special members-only events and benefits. LOAC members receive advanced notice of exhibit openings, preregistration privileges for workshops and camps, and the opportunity to exhibit in the annual LOAC Members Exhibition.

We offer different membership levels for individuals, couples, and families. Purchase or renew your Live Oak Art Center membership today!
